FEDORA (title role), if Opera, 2023

Hers is a sumptuous voice that can soar one moment to the top of its range and over the orchestra, the next drop instantly to a beautifully controlled pianissimo. She is rapidly maturing into one of the finest singer-actors of her generation. - Jonathan Cross, Opera Magazine

But it is Ingram’s vocal prowess and convincing portrayal of a character who swings from a grief-stricken, angry young woman seeking revenge to one pleading for her lover’s forgiveness that makes this the most memorable If Opera production I’ve yet to see, with a moving finale guaranteed to bring a tear to your eye.  -  Rebecca Lipkin, The Arbuturian

Ingram made Fedora zing, combining elegance and passion, rising superbly both to her declaration of love for Loris in Act Two and the terrific death scene at the end of Act Three.  -  Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill

Ingram excels in the intensity of the soprano demands as she veers from haughtiness and amour to distress turning into a vengeful rage.  -  Mike Smith, Opera Scene

And who could not be persuaded by the soprano Sky Ingram, who dazzled in the title role? She was a striking presence both physically and vocally. Tall, young, with a shock of red hair, as much Hollywood goddess as Russian Princess, she projected powerfully the vicissitudes of the character - by turns passionate, vengeful and suicidal.   -  Jonathan Cross, Opera Magazine


RUSALKA, Foreign Princess, Garsington Opera

… Sky Ingram was a revelation. Better known as a fine singer of Mozartean repertoire, the soprano appeared to have installed an upgrade to her vocal cords that suggests a shift into heavier roles. On this showing, bring it on.   - Mark Valencia, Musical America 


Sky Ingram’s glamour-puss Foreign Princess hurls out her spectacular opening solo from high on a Victorian gantry.   - John Allison, Dily Telegraph


…a perfectly snooty foreign princess, who messes up Rusalka’s plans to get her prince, sung by the Australian soprano Sky Ingram.   - Simon Heffer, Weekend Telegraph 


Sky Ingram incarnated the ambitious Foreign Princess with scornful hauteur, a Baroness to Rusalka’s Maria von Trapp.   - Hugh Canning, Opera Magazine 


Sky Ingram’s fragrant Foreign Princess was an engaging, seductive presence.   - Dominic Lowe, Bachtrack 


…strong performances from Sky Ingram as a wonderfully haughty Foreign Princess   - Melanie Eskenazi, MusicOMH 


Sky Ingram was brilliantly self-centred, flirty, and elegant as the Foreign Princess, and Ingram brought a lovely sense of amused puzzlement to her treatment of Romaniw’s Rusalka.  Ingram was in good voice and made this small role count.   - Robert Hugill, Opera Today & Planet Hugill 


… an elegant and eloquent Sky Ingram in rich red velvet.   - Catriona Graham, OperaCritic 


… Sky Ingram, who has played the title role, is a stylish, predatory Foreign Princess.   - Keith Bruce, VoxCarnyx


Sky Ingram, excellent as the spiteful Princess who mocks Rusalka, gladly welcomed pantomime boos at the end.   - Mark Ronan, The Article


ALCINA (title role), Opera North

"A real highlight of the night was Ingram who.. stepped up and seized her moment with a strong vocal performance filled with passion and anger in equal measure."  - Mark Davoren, "North West End UK"

"As for Australian soprano, Sky Ingram, who stepped into the role of Alcina.. tackles passion, poise, power and vulnerability, each with equal aptitude: Brava!"   - Martin Thomasson, "Quays Life"

Alcina played by Sky Ingram wonderfully portrayed her character with impressive vocals. 
- Chloe O’ Malley, "Yeah Lifestyle"
"Due to sickness, Sky Ingram stepped in at short notice to play the protagonist Alcina and delivered an excellent performance. If I hadn't been told beforehand, I wouldn't have noticed that Ingram was filling in... Her duets with Patrick Terry's Ruggiero, her lover, were filled with passion, love and desire.."  - Nicola Brierley, "The Play's the Thing"

COSI FAN TUTTE / FIORDILIGI, English Touring Opera

The cast performs to a uniformly high standard, headed by the dazzling Sky Ingram as Fiordiligi, who has all the vocal attributes needed for this testing soprano role.   -  Scottish Daily Mail

Sky Ingram's Willowy Fiordiligi conveyed conflicting loyalties without being overwhelmed by them and bestrode the mountainous range of her arias in style.  -  Christopher Webber, Opera Magazine

Ingram does lovely things with her Act Two aria and her voice blends beautifully with Jones’s in their duets.  -  Tim Ashley, The Guardian


THE WRECKERS / AVIS, Bard SummerScape, New York, USA

soprano Sky Ingram, as Avis, appeared perfectly cast and able to inhabit her role with equal dramatic and vocal persuasion.  -  Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim, The New York Times

The London-based Australian soprano, Sky Ingram, as Avis, above all, created a character who was hotter and more intense than life, an unforgettable star turn…striking with her flowing red hair. Her bright voice filled the hall, always agile enough to negotiate her often athletic lines.  -  New York Arts, Michael Miller


GLARE / LEA, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden

Ingram shows yet again why her star is rising fast  -  Mark Valencia, WhatsOnStage

Sky Ingram, in a flawless performance, copes with long, stratospheric lines of vocal writing  -  Mark Pullinger, Bachtrack



The star of the show was undoubtedly Sky Ingram in her role of Musetta, Marcello’s flirtatious and temperamental love interest, who was the very definition of bohemian passion.   -  Anastasia Kennedy, The State of the Arts



The star of the show, and by an immense margin, was the Frau Fluth of Sky Ingram, a tall, sexy Australian with a figure that enabled her to strip plausibly to minimal dominatrix gear, and a voice which could do anything Nicolai wanted, which in Frau Fluth’s case is a great deal   -  Michael Tanner, The Spectator UK

Sky Ingram's Frau Fluth had the highest profile, and Ingram went for it with a will, her full-on comic acting and extravagant athleticism not getting in the way of her big, characterful soprano and some agile coloratura.  -  Peter Reed, Opera (magazine)

One of the other pleasures was Sky Ingram as a statuesque, raven-haired Frau Fluth; she was lovely throughout, and everything she did – including her on-going hoovering and dusting during the interval – oozed sex-appeal. Ms Ingram will go far  -  Jim Pritchard, Seen and Heard International

Sky Ingram, in the star role of Frau Fluth (Mistress Ford), has a compelling stage presence, great looks and a versatile soprano voice.  - Fiona Maddocks, The Observer



Don Giovanni... is all about the singing & we had some superlative examples of that ... led by the Elvira of Sky Ingram... Hers was the performance of the Summer Festival scene so far.  -  Melanie Eskenazi, @musicOMH

Sky Ingram was a terrific Donna Elvira. She sang with a winning combination of strong and colourful emotion and control of melodic line; 'Mi tradi quell'alma ingrata' was one of the evening's highlights.  -  Claire Seymour, Opera Today


DON GIOVANNI / DONNA ELVIRA, Théâtre des Champs Élysées, Paris, France

Sky Ingram a la voix d’airain qu’exige Elvira à la fois dans les élans amoureux et dans les éclats de fureur où elle excelle. Son assurance dans « Mi tradi quell’alm ingrata » lui vaut de francs applaudissements. (Sky Ingram has the brazen voice that Elvira demands both in the amorous impulses and in the bursts of fury she excels at. Her assurance in "Mi tradi quell'alm ingrata" earned her applause.)  -  Marcel Quillévéré,

Sky Ingram utilise sa voix ronde et sonore pour proposer une Donna Elvira forte en caractère. Habillée d'un rouge qui met en relief sa chevelure rousse ainsi que la passion du personnage (Sky Ingram uses her round and sonorous voice to offer a strong Donna Elvira in character. Dressed in a red that highlights her red hair and the passion of the character)  -  Agostino Trotta, Olyrix


ORPHEUS / VENUS, Royal Opera, Covent Garden

In the comic scenes, Sky Ingram as Venus was the clear winner. With a mane of red hair and long legs, she was the visual image of a screen goddess and vamped it up something rotten.   -  Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill


DIDO AND AENEAS / DIDO, English Touring Opera

There are performances of blazing conviction by Sky Ingram’s Dido  -  Tim Ashley, The Guardian

a touchingly vulnerable and pure-toned Sky Ingram  -  Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph

fine singing from a strong team led by the Australian soprano Sky Ingram  -  David Mellor, Mail Online

Rarely does Purcell’s vivid setting of Nahum Tate’s libretto find such convincing exponents as in Sky Ingram’s impassioned Dido  -  George Hall, Opera Now




Sky Ingram a bold and elegant Countess  - Mark Ronan, Theatre Reviws

Ingram’s Countess also delivered powerful emotions in her arias. “Porgi, amor” was painfully sad and lonely - Bachtrack, Jane Shuttleworth,

Sky Ingram’s lyrically sentient Countess  - The Stage, George Hall
